Probably not. But if your making probably the best diesel engine in the world for performance and economy then you can get away with charging a bit more.
But that's BMW all over, does it really cost £1600 for an auto 'box? Around £1500 for sat nav? £500 for bluetooth? (in the E90) etc, etc.....
With regards to diff between 328i and 330d calcs, the guy above only got 25 mpg out of a 328i which sounds a bit disappointing. I get late 30's - 40 mpg out of my current E90 330d
so I'd expect the F30 330d to be even better than that based on the manufacturers figures.
